There are claims that it is supposed to be *way* more powerful than PS3. Interesting. Controllers might have built in touch screens too... Jeez.

Kind of an odd move for Nintendo here. The trend has been towards extending console lifespans, and the Wii isn't even 4.5 years old yet. They've got a huge install base, and with the economy in the toilet worldwide I don't really see the logic in pushing forward with something that might fragment your market for developers. And, to top it off, it's not like their primary competitors are rushing to get new systems to market -- most things I've read said Microsoft & Sony are each, at minimum, probably 3-4 years away from new consoles.

Ah well -- I'm eager to see what it looks like. I don't think Nintendo has ever been first to market with a next-gen console. They're usually content to let someone else make the first move and slip in somewhere in the middle. Should be interesting.

It's odd, only because Nintendo always plays it safe. But I think it's about time they decide to recognize what year it is and give us a High-Definition console with power.

I'm looking forward to some full 1080p Zelda and Mario, that is for fucking sure.

You'd still have your standard one you just bought, no? That really wouldn't help your problem. Plus, shitty graphics in HD are still shitty graphics.

i wouldn't buy the HD one was my (poorly presented) point. that way, those who really need to have an HD wii can go buy another one and people like me that aren't concerned with HD wii graphics since they're not that spectacular anyway can just stick with the one we have

It has potential, I'll be honest. But Nintendo will find a way to water it down somehow. N64 was their last great system.

N64 was pretty rad, but in hindsight i'm not sure it had all that many great games. but the ones that were great were really fucking great.

Dude, how dare you diss Zelda... especially that one. Yea, Cruisin USA is by no means a great game, but I played the ever living shit out of it.

Don't forget "Shadows of the Empire" as well and "WCW Revenge" or "WWF No Mercy".
